For many, coming out of the closet is not an easy task. But for one man, the life changing moment turned into a headline all thanks to pop star, Rihanna.

Rihanna apparently secretly helped one Navy fan with the undertaking by giving him words of encouragement on Twitter. “Baby it’s ok to be scared, but it’s more important to be who you are! You don’t have a choice really,” she wrote after the fan tweeted her about his fears back in March.

Rihanna added, “That’s not a decision to be made! You are who you are, and as hard as it may seem, the best s**t ever is freedom and peace within yourself! Your family may not understand, but luckily you live in a generation that does!! And not to mention the community here amongst us, we will hold you down boo!!”

After taking Ri’s words of advice, the fan responded: “I finally came out to my second close friend over here 😉 I’m feeling so good Rih, thanks to you.”

According to BuzzFeed, the 28-year-old has been following the man’s journey as he slowly comes out to his loved ones. The man, who wanted to remain anonymous, also revealed to the news outlet that it is difficult to come out as a Black man, but “Rihanna’s messages have helped him realize that he shouldn’t be ashamed of who he is.”

The Navy member plans on being completely out of the closet by the time he meets Ri at her ANTI world tour in July.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden



Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
